‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ also hits toy stores after 50th

The Beatles’ iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band arrived in the United States 50 years ago tomorrow, helping forever change the musical landscape with songs such as “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “With a Little Help from My Friends” and, of course, its title track.

The sonic experimentation (and heavily parodied album cover) stands up after all those years and the four members of the band will be hitting toy stores soon as part of the anniversary, adding to a wave of merchandise that also includes similar but smaller blind-wrapped mini figures for Yellow Submarine.

Titans Vinyl Figures has these 4.5-inch toys set to arrive on June 28 at $14.99 a pop — John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr along with the drum from the album cover — for toy fans can perhaps build their own Sgt. Peppers toy montages. (Or something like that.)

These larger toys are packaged in a window display unlike their smaller counterparts. The blind-wrapped toys, which you also can see in a gallery below, are 3-inch sculpts with 14 figures in all — there are two chase toys not shown — to collect.
